NEBRASKA’s HALL OF SHAME
Stop the use and abuse of your donations, support and votes – hold them accountable! If a senator or other elected official is voting opposite of what they represented during their campaign ask them to RETURN YOUR DONATION – I did and got it.
2015 – LB 623 Driver’s Licenses for illegal aliens – Summary
In summary, left winger Sen. Jeremy Nordquist introduced LB 623 Drivers Licenses for illegal aliens. While this bill pertains to children of illegal aliens who qualify under President Obama’s Executive Order DACA the Constitutionality of his authority to do so without Congressional approval is working its way through to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Nordquist and McCollister argued it brings NE into compliance with The Real ID Act except that Nebraska passed and Adopted LR 28 in 2007 opposing the enactment and urged Congress to repeal it; On April 10, 2014 Nebraska Legislature passed and Adopted LR399 opposing any state action on immigration because it is a duty of Congress.
LB623 was initially voted down by the Transportation and Telecommunication Committee but then Republican Sen. John McCollister made it his Priority Bill guaranteeing it would get on the floor agenda. Lobbyists like the ACLU, Nebraska Appleseed and others began pressuring senators to be co-sponsors.
After OMAHA MAYOR STOTHERT endorsed it the Committee advanced it and Republicans added their names giving enough votes to pass and over ride a veto.
Voting to advance it from Committee were Sens. Jim Smith, Al Davis, Curt Friesen, Les Seiler and Tommy Garrett. NO votes by Sens. Beau McCoy and John Murante. Abstained Sen. Lydia Brasch.
